Dogs and music?

Do dogs have a musical sense?, do dogs like listening to music?

Well, yeah they do!, depending on the kind of music. Just the same way you like listening to cool classical music while walking in the park or when resting, and you enjoy rock jams when you're out on that early morning jog, dogs enjoy music too. The language of dogs and music share a common characteristic: their universality… these two are global languages and they don´t depend on borders or flags. Since music is a universal language, it also has a relaxative effect on humans. Research confirms that dogs have musical preferences and react differently to particular types of music. Psychologist Deborah Wells at Queens University in Belfast, exposed dogs in an animal shelter to different types of music. The dogs’ behaviors were observed when they listened to either a compilation of popular music (including Britney Spears, Robbie Williams and Bob Marley), classical music (including Grieg'sMorning,Vivaldi'sFour Sea…

The truth why Dogs love sniffing everything?

It is quite natural for dogs to sniff. Just as it is for humans to sneeze. This is often why they stop abruptly while on a walk to sniff a scrawny shrub or a passerby. Dogs love to sniff. Their 'nosiness' can get get quite out of control when a visitor calls by and they insistin on sniffing 'embarrasing places'.Dogs are born to sniff. The area of the canine brain that is devoted to analysing scent is 40 times greater than that of the human and dogs can identify smells at least 1,000 times better than we can! The dog’s superior sense of smell comes from 220 million olfactory receptors in its nose. Compared to the human’s paltry 5 million, it’s no wonder smell is considered to be the dog’s primary sense. When a dog
 sniffs, air is taken in and passes through the
 olfactory epithelium (nasal skin cells). 
These calls are also found in a special organ 
that dogs (and cats) possess, called the Jacobsen’s
 or vomeronasal organ. This organ is thought to be

TEACHING DOGS TO GO IN ONE SPOT: Speaking of location, for some reason my dogs have been eliminating exclusively in my flower gardens. Not so great healthy when I’ll be spending lots of time digging in the dirt. The only exception to their flower garden preference is the lawn in front of our front door. I didn’t worry about the lawn over the winter, because usually it is covered in snow and the moisture acts to dilute the urine. Not this winter, however, because we have had so little snow, so I now have a front lawn that is more yellow grass than green. I’m not an obsessive lawn caretaker, but I’d still rather not…
